A judge dismisses the case after the NBA star works out a deal with the alleged victim

Los Angeles Lakers star Nick Young is moving on from his rape case stemming from a 2011 incident in which a woman claims the basketball player drugged and sexually assaulted her.

Young stood accused of picking up the woman at a West Hollywood bar where she claims he bought her and her friend champagne. The woman said details of the night became hazy after she finished the drink and woke up in Young's bed, bleeding from her vagina and rectum.

The woman said she immediately went to the UCLA Santa Monica Rape Treatment Center, where she took a rape kit and was tested for STDs. The exam proved she had injuries consistent with rape. 


In May 2013, the woman sued Young for $3 million, hitting him with charges of sexual battery, sexual assault, false imprisonment and more.

While Young initially fought the million-dollar suit, TMZ reports he has now struck a deal with the woman and the case has been dismissed. Details of the settlement have remained under wraps due to a confidentiality agreement.
